Sat at our table for twenty minutes without the server even acknowledging our presence as he walked by us 6-7 times serving other tables.
Great choice for Downtown dining! Excellent menu and noise level is conducive to conversation. My go-to choice for all occasions.
Drake has been one of my favorite restaurants over the last few years. Ive written a glowing review in the past. This last visit was just okay. It felt like they were short staffed and rushing around so I didn’t feel the same great level of calm and attentive service I thought was the standard at Drake. Will still continue to go and hope it was just an off night.
Had a reservation for 7:45. Walked in at 7:45. Stood there for 15 minutes without being helped. Walked out.
Pretty cut and dry.
Amazing brunch!! We had the carne asada fries which were amazing followed by one of the best burgers I have ever had. Can't wait to go back.
Have been to the Drake for dinner and the menu was superb. I thought the brunch/lunch menu a little short in choices. The food and service were very good, but a few specials would have added to the menu.
A favorite place in Downtown Bend! Great menu, great service, and not too loud for conversation at the table. Nice cocktail selection and daily specials, too.
Nice evening. Then went on to the Theater. A good evening had by all.
The cod was outstanding.
Went again for the Wednesday lunch special and enjoyed a great meal at a great price. Will definitely be a regular!!
Our family has always loved going to Drake for random dinner nights and special occasions. It has been our top favorite place to dine for quite some time. I rarely write reviews- because i feel that popular establishments, such as Drake, are allowed to fall short sometimes. I decided to put my two scents in now because i love Drake and feel it has slipped in both food quality and service. Hoping it will return to the consistent favorite that we knew and loved.
We snuck into this popular establishment on a Tuesday. Husband and I split the kale salad, fried chicken, and butterscotch pudding. All was fabulous, and the service was outstanding as well! Highly recommend!
We love the Drake - our favorite time to go is for Brunch on the weekends and Monday night for their steak/frites special. Our server, Nicholas is always top notch.
We spent Valentine’s Day dinner there and the food was great. The chef does a great job pairing interesting flavors. The space is small so it was very loud. It was difficult to have a conversation. Fun place though and there are still many items on the menu we will go back to try
We had a wonderful experience and meal at the Drake. The food was delicious and the staff were top notch! Very polite and responsive. Really impressed!
Wonderful Valentine's Day menu!!! We fortunately received an email about this special dinner event. I quickly made reservations as I knew they would fill up fast. The menu was incredible with everything tasting so good. The honey roasted winter squash soup with apple relish was a perfect starter. The second course tostada appetizer with guacamole, ahi tuna and popcorn (yes...popcorn) was amazing!!! Our entrées were both seasoned and prepared expertly. The chef came out and walked table to table to chat with the patrons which was a nice touch. The dessert (warm donuts and a side of decadent chocolate mouse) was so yummy!!! Can't say enough about this local favorite! Wish we lived a block away so we would have an excuse to come here more often. ;)
Good drinks and service. Food was tasty
Drake is consistently excellent and this time was no exception. Excellent, friendly service from Roger. Nice job, Drake!
Had the "power lunch" special which included beer or wine. Food was excellent, nice presentation and great value. Will definitely be back for lunch again and Drake is always a favorite dinner spot for us and our friends. Can't say too many good things!!!
Intolerable noise level. Good service, food and variety on menu
Loved Drake’s ... beautiful atmosphere, friendly people, delicious food ... we had kids with us and they were very accommodating about letting them have their own table. All of the food was super tasty!
Dinner out with my mom and sisters and nieces. Wonderful food, service, ambiance!
The Drake burger is the best in town! Be sure to make a reservation on Open Table. The restaurant was full.
Delicious food and the best service in town. We'll be going back!
Fried chicken entree used to be served with mashed potatoes; tonight it was served on a COLD bed of brockilini???
Also the chicken was served in unrecognizable pieces in smaller portions then the past.
I was disappointed with my meal. I’ve loved their salad and order it frequently as I’m mostly vegetarian and it’s very good. But this time, it was less than adequate. I like to order a side of salmon in top, but they were out and it was only 6pm when I ordered. Also, we went to Washington last Friday night and I ordered the same salad which was wonderful and reminded me again how poor the Drake salad and the Brussel sprouts I ordered to replace the salmon. I don’t care to give pour reviews and didn’t mention that night, but thought Drake may want to know. Thank you.
Although we could only get a reservation at 5:00, we were delighted to get a booth on this latest visit. Service is patient and friendly always. Specials are interesting and menu staples never disappoint. Brussel sprouts, burger, fried chicken are all so yummy. Good wine selection.
The service as always was knowledgeable and friendly. The NY special was amazing! Full of flavor and cooked to perfection!
Loved the food & cocktails. This was our second time to dine there and will go back again the next time we visit Bend.
Awesome place in downtown Bend. Highly recommend.
I ordered fish tacos for the first time and was disappointed. Very little fish. Mostly fried breading. Not enough salsa. We were catching up with folks in town for the holidays so didn’t complain at the time. Everyone else’s food was good. Your food has always been good.
We always enjoy Drake. Great food and great service. The last two times we have been were for the Monday special that includes a glass of wine. Can’t beat it so we’re telling all our friends.
Always great service + food when we come to eat! Keep up the hard work team!
Adorable and nostalgic restaurant, with innovative menu. I wish the lighting chandeliers were pulled up higher. They are so low and bright in your eyes.
Our meal of a petite filet and au gratin potatoes was outstanding, the service very good. Our only complaint was the noise level...loud. However not any more than many other local restaurants.
Squid ink linguine with clams was so salty it was inedible. When server offered to provide new pasta, she tossed the uneaten claims and just provided new pasta. We refused to pay for the meal. Overall impression is the place looks upscale but food quality not up to the competition in Bend.
Great service, good food and cocktails. A very enjoyable dinner.
Great service and ambiance as always. Food is slightly on the rich side for my taste but it’s a fun treat if you’re prepared and expecting that.
Great food. Loved the place. I think servers were understaffed, as they were rushed and too busy to really offer the service you would expect at this restaurant.
Good food ,good value. Friendly staff, fast service.
